6184358da000 ("riscv: Fixup static_obj() fail") attempted to elide a lockdep
failure by rearranging our kernel memory map to place all initdata within
[_stext, _end], thus triggering lockdep to treat these as static objects.
These objects are released and eventually reallocated, causing
check_kernel_text_object() to trigger a BUG().

This reverts commit 6184358da0004c8fd940afda6c0a0fa4027dc911.

It's pretty late in the process so while I'd prefer to fix both bugs (ie, fix
lockdep without breaking hardened usercopy) I don't think there's time to do so
for 5.9 (or even 5.10).  I'll try to find some time to look in to a more
focused fix to the lockdep issue, but finding some time to actually think about
our memory map has been on my TODO list for a while now.
